This bifurcation of Open Source from all other software was a very familiar behavior—it is the same one that ten years ago insisted that the Internet and related technologies were discrete from IT and the datacenter. A ha! As I am fond of saying, there is little new in the world, all things old are new again.
Mandriva executive Gael Duval today confirmed rumors that he was laid off from the company he co-founded, along with a number of other Mandriva employees. Duval told NewsForge that he is going to bring suit against Mandriva for "abusive layoff." He also plans on working on new oss os Ulteo.
It's a lot easier to make the leap from Windows to GNU/Linux on a desktop machine (or even a server) than it is a laptop. Laptop computers are far more likely to contain unsupported unique or proprietary hardware than desktop machines, so laptop computers in general can be difficult to get your favorite free software operating system onto. Confused as to what distro you should use, or what computer you should buy? Here are some tips to make your decisions easier.
In the GNOME philosophy, we want applications that do their job, only their job, and we want those to do it perfectly. Epiphany's job is to browse the web. Only browsing the web. But browsing the web in a GNOME fashioned way.

Much fuss has been made about open source software, particularly its influence on back-end server environments. Some organizations are deciding that open source is the right option for them. To best determine whether some or all of your server infrastructure is a good candidate for open source solutions, consider several criteria.
Cast your minds back, if you will, to OpenOffice.org 1.4 or so. Back in those days, I taught people to do mail merges with the Address Autopilot. There was another approach, too: it was a nice little mail merge tool that let you select your starting document, your data source, and the fields to insert. But where is it now?
Developers, users and interested parties met online last night to discuss Ubuntu Dapper Drake's possible six-week delay, proposed by Mark Shuttleworth last week. The large group had mixed feelings, but on the whole seemed to be in agreement with Shuttleworth.
The yearly KDE World Summit, Akademy, has found a home for 2006 on the emerald isle. This year, the multi-day event for contributors to the leading Free Desktop will be held from September 23nd to 30th 2006 in beautiful Dublin, capital city of Ireland.
While PostgreSQL's adoption rate continues to accelerate, some folks wonder why that rate isn't even steeper given its impressive array of features. One can speculate that many of the reasons for not considering its adoption tend to be based on either outdated or misinformed sources.
Do recent events point to a downward spiral for Linux as a business or is it just business as usual? Looking at key recent events gives one pause and food for thought. Consider...
In order to facilitate current inter- and extra- community communication and innovation there is need for a Human Computer Interaction working group (short name "HCI working group") within KDE made up of core accessibility, usability, internationalization and artist community members.
In issue 78 of Linux Format, on the shelves now, we have an interview with Edd Dumbill and Niel Bornstein - two prominent Mono coders who've written a book on the open source .NET implementation. Here's a few of the questions we asked, along with their answers:
Ken Kutaragi, president of Sony Computer Entertainment, took center stage and delivered the big news: PlayStation 3 will not release until November 2006, but with Linux preinstalled.
"I don't believe we will have a full beta process for the Linux version. We will go through the entire play balancing and bug fixing problems with the Windows version" first, developers state.

At home, I have an ADSL connection with a single public IP (fixed IP, even if it's served through DHCP). What I wanted was to be able to connect my old laptop to the Internet using the existing SuSE box. Since I want to make it as simple as possible, I won't use a supplementary hub. My shopping list is very minimalistic.
DDOS, or Distributed Denial of Service is an advanced version of DOS(Denial of Service) attack. Like DOS, DDOS also tries to deny important services running on a server by broadcasting packets to the destination server in a way that the Destination server cannot handle it.
The Fedora distribution is one of the most widely used GNU/Linux distributions. Fedora Core 5 (FC5) is slated for release next week. Like earlier Fedora releases, it includes both recent versions of desktop programs and maturing software that has yet to be included in most other distributions.
